Why this business was started
My partner Rob, our CEO is the inventor of the WhirlyBird Repeller. Rob is a long-time sailor and was getting tired of cleaning up the mess left behind by the sea gulls and grackles on his dock and sailboat. Rob started the company to fill a gap in the market for a reliable product that is easy to install, long lasting, and doesn’t require batteries or external power. The WhirlyBird Repeller was quickly accepted in the marine markets, but then found its way into cell tower, restaurant with outdoor dining, and agricultural markets.
The reason of selling this business
Presently, the company is a little more than a high-volume home-based business, but has much potential for market expansion. The bird deterrent market is in the hundreds of millions in the US along. However, we are now involved in other ventures that are taking up much of our time, leaving no time for proper marketing that is required for expansion.
What's involved in running this business
This business is a turn-key operation with all required sourcing, manufacturing, assembly, shipping, marketing, accounting, and general business processes clearly defined in our detailed business plan. The new owner can be easily brought up to speed with each system in a short time with minimal interruption to income.
